Expect long delays starting Monday in Whatcom, Snohomish, Skagit and Island counties as road resurfacing work resumes
Crews will work stretches of SR 9, 11, 20, 530, 531, 539, 542

July 21, 2018



Chronicle staff

(SEDRO-WOOLLEY, WA.) – The Washington State Dept. of Transportation (WSDOT) says starting Monday it’ll take you a little longer to get to where you want to go in western Washington, depending upon where you live and where your normal commute route is.

Starting with a stretch of State Route 9 in Skagit County on Monday, July 23, crews will add a new protective highway surface to nines stretches of seven highways in Island, Skagit, Snohomish and Whatcom counties.

WSDOT contractor crews from Granite Construction did pavement repair and crack sealing work earlier this year and now that the weather is hotter, they are headed back to the same highways to add a new top layer of coated gravel and oil to the road.

What to expect 
Work crews need hot temperatures for these materials to combine, so all resurfacing work will happen during weekday daytime hours. Drivers should expect significant delays – even 45 minutes or more during peak travel times – behind the moving work zone.

Flaggers and a pilot car will alternate travelers through the area.

Upcoming work zones 
Work will occur in the following locations:
 

For a more detailed look at the work areas on each highway, visit the northwest Washington resurfacing project website.

Crews will work on one section of highway at a time. Updated schedules and work zone location information are available:

This work will affect anyone who drives, cycles or walks along these stretches of highway.

Ways to limit delays

  • Avoid non-essential trips during working hours.

  • Consider carpooling or using public transportation through the work zone.

  • Leave plenty of additional travel time.

Motorcycle riders should consider alternate routes to avoid overheating. Whenever possible, crews leave the shoulder space as-is to keep the ride smoother for bicyclists, but using alternate routes may also be a good option during the work.

Following the application of the new surface, crews will come in and sweep the area overnight. They will come back and apply new striping once the surface has fully cured.

This seven-highway project is estimated to cost $10 million dollars. Resurfacing preserves the highways to help prevent costly emergency repairs in between full re-paving projects.
